Sarah Poulson on collaborating on the Surveillance System

The Surveillance System says Poulson is a physical network of bodies controlling bodies through movement, video, improvisation and sound. "These works exist somewhere between the realms of performance art and dance. They focus on movement as a language of basic human interaction, whether it is through a subtle gesture, a theatrical spectacle, or the placement of a body within a space." says Poulson.

In fact it also represents to many viewers a temporal and iterative dimension to dance with technology capturing proportions of bodies and technologies temporally in dimension and space.
.
Sarah says, " Pre-recorded and live surveillance videos act as signals that trigger the performers’ options within the non-linear dramas. Choreographed and improvisational elements based on spontaneous decisions force us (and/or other performers) to learn how we fit within the system and how we can or cannot manipulate one another. Dynamic systems of communication emerge within these multi-sensory works."

Hi Marlon, I really have no personal expertise in what Sarah and Holly are working on; I was very fascinating by finding her page here, on dance-tech.net. From Sarah's page here, I visited her site to find additional information about her use of cameras to document the var..., movement, and one would think, as an extension of any performance. From what I understand this field has grown considerably. I'd be happy to dig further if you'd like.
